Payment Assistance through the Army COOL
If you are on active duty in the US Army you may qualify for payment assistance through the Army COOL program. Many Military Occupational Specialties and jobs are eligible for funding of the BICSI certifications. If you qualify, Army COOL will pay for the BICSI Certification application and exam fees. COOL is not authorized to pay for any training or training materials.
